Prescriptions

Repeat prescriptions are medications which appear on the reverse of your prescription which your doctor would like you to continue on a regular basis.

How to request a Repeat Prescription

We are no longer printing paper prescriptions for collection. All prescriptions are provided electronically. Patients can visit any pharmacy to collect their medication that has been prescribed electronically. Your prescription barcode will be sent to you via text message. 

We advise all patients to nominate a local pharmacy. This will enable us to send your prescription directly to your chosen pharmacy. 

Please allow 2 working days for all prescriptions requests to be processed.

How to order your repeat prescriptions:

Online

You can order your repeat prescriptions via Systm Online on a computer, ipad or a phone APP. The surgery will give you a log in and password to access this. 

Email

Please email your prescription request to prescription.ephc@nhs.net

In Person

Fill in a prescription request form or underline the items needed on the tear-off side of your prescription and drop it into the postbox outside the surgery. Please do not order any medications you do not need.

Post

If a stamped addressed envelope is supplied, your prescription can be returned via Royal Mail. Find our postal address.
